<p>I'm very into fertility, charting, understanding how our bodies work (like I'm sure many of you on here are) and a few times I've been able to help friends with conception related questions....and I completely love it.  It really sparks something in me.  Is there anything out there that I could do that involves teaching women about their fertility and helping with charting?  I wish there were some sort of certification that one could do to teach this stuff (like bradley and hypnobirthing teachers and doulas)  I don't think there is, but I thought I would come on here and ask if anyone knows of anything.</p>

<p>thanks!</p>

<p>I'm not aware of any certifications, but I have taught informal "seminars" to friends and friends-of-friends a few times.  It started by word of mouth and a friend would put a group together and I'd come and "teach".  I made up some handouts and a outline of what to talk about and that was it.  I called my seminars "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made", which is a take-off of a bible verse (Psalm 139:14).</p>

<p>I didn't charge for the nights, it was just a fun time for everyone.  </p>

The Natural Parenting store around here hosts periodic paid workshops on charting and fertility. You could organize something similar if there is a market for it in your area.<br><br>
The Couple to Couple league (Catholic) is one of the biggest organizations teaching NFP. I believe they are looking for couples who are Catholic to teach <a href="http://www.ccli.org/educate/" target="_blank">http://www.ccli.org/educate/</a> here's the link in case you ID as Catholic. At the very least, keep in mind that Catholics might be a great market for you if you do go forward with this.
